. governor romney has offered no specific ideas that i've heard that differ from obama or in some instances, even any specific ideas at all. >> having said that, the criticism against the president is this. by doing this kind of leading from behind strategy that he's adopted, that it lends itself tto a sense that america is no longer a truly dominant world power, that it's happy for others to take the lead. it creates a kind of vacuum which could be filled by undesirable people. >> well, that entire argument is based on a myth and that myth is that at some point in the past, the u.s. was able to simply snap its fingers or flex its muscles and force the world to its will. that has never been the case. i think it's really dangerous to consider the prospects of having a president of the united states who imagines that it is the case. we have to work with other countries to get forward and move forward. we can't just go into libya or syria or egypt or any of these places, walk in there and say you have to do exactly what we want. if mitt romney truly believes that, then i shudder to think how m
the foreign policy proposals of governor romney in contrast to president obama? >> there's some differences that david articulated. the two that were probably most specific leaning forward more to arm the syrian opposition, i think that's actually a significant difference. >> rose: without promising the u.s. would do it. >> but clearly moving in that direction. essentially if you're not going to get involved military ourselves-- which he didn't promise to do, i think, quite rightly-- then i took it -- i don't see it as purely as you two. i think he would favor arming the syrians with fairly advanced weapons. anti-aircraft and anti-armor. >> rose: that's a distinction from the obama administration according to the -- >> right. i think the nuclear weapons capability line with iran. that seems to be different because the president's always talked about we're not going to contain an iran with nuclear weapons. mr. romney seems to be saying we're not even prepared to get that close. obviously the devil's in the details. >> rose: so governor romney's red line may be earlier than president obama's
's in the details. >> rose: so governor romney's red line may be earlier than president obama's red line. >> exactly right. i actually thought one other thing was interesting which is he talked about our relationship with most of the arab countries. the egypts and others, the libyas. what he essentially laid out was called a conditional foreign policy. essentially saying, look, the era where we gave aid to you all and you act as you see fit is over. we will continue to work with you but only so long as you meet us halfway, whether it's the way you treat women, girls and minorities, your foreign policy more broadly against israel and terrorism. i think that's an important statement and one that people in both parties should be able to support. >> rose: and it would include both egypt and saudi arabia? >> that's an interesting question whether it goes to saudi arabia, bahrain. and, again, the devil is in the details and how we're going to do that but clearly i think it was aimed at egypt. >> rose: what about this idea of defense treaties and the idea of nuclear weapons systems? did he speak to that? >
the presidential campaigns. president obama chooses governor romney of sending american jobs to china during his time at bain capital. romney called the present week on china promising stricter and forcing trade practices bowing to label a currency manipulator. some argue stronger rhetoric and tourist will lead to a loss for american consumers and u.s. companies conducting business in china. back to you. melissa: get somebody on the show who install solar panels in the u.s., buying materials from china, much cheaper over there and was so frustrated because he is in the solar business but is now being penalized because he buys from china. what is the next step? >> that is the thing to look at both sides for 10 seed manufacturers in the united states sometimes pushing for this and those who import and use these materials saying no, it really depends on the world trade organization when it comes to the broader practices to fight it out, but it is really just the commerce department, one more step and he can be paying a lot more to install those panels. lori: threatening to label them currency manip
, if you were president obama or his campaign and you heard governor romney say in a big foreign policy address that the -- >> you have gotten it wrong. >> i'm not going to accept the premise. >> he said negotiated. >> no, he didn't. >> look at the transcript. >> that is the truth. he has done as little as possible on trade. >> we will see on thursday night how the ryan debate goes with joe biden. right now i have to tell you ed, your man is in a heap of trouble. i appreciate it. >> jennifer rubin and steve, thank you very wuch. and to our big tweet. you have to love our cnbc intern. hi, don'those adds. coming up. an investigation exposes how the president's campaign may have violated federal election law. [ horn honks ] hey, it's sandra -- from accounting. peter. i can see that you're busy... but you were gonna help us crunch the numbers for accounts receivable today. i mean i know that this is important. well, both are important. let's be clear. they are but this is important too.

, he did. >>> president obama and governor mitt romney campaign in the critical state of ohio today. romney is going to try to capitalize on a big swing in the polls after last week's debate. this morning a national pew research poll shows romney leads the president 49% to 47%. in the same poll last moment, the president led 51 to 43%. in virginia yesterday romney blasted the president's leadership on foreign policy. >> we face real challenges right now. but they're not greater than we're able to overcome. as long as we have leaders that will take us on the path that will restore america's strength and vitality, i'll bring us back. i will get us back on track. i will keep america strong with strong values and strong homes. i'll make sure we rebuild our economy, we put people to work, and i'll make sure we have the strongest military in the history of the world. we'll keep a military second to none. >> last night in san francisco the president told supporters his record on international affairs is strong. >> every brave american who wears the uniform of this country should know as lo
president obama was skating to victory, there was nothing that was going to stop him and governor romney was dead and his political fortunes were over. in the split of a second it is almost the opposite. there are four weeks to go, there are still a lot of campaigning to do, critical debates have to happen. the president did not have a good debate, i think that is self-evident. moving on i think you have two key debates and the vice presidental debate that will be really critical. how each candidate performs in those debates will have an incredible significance in who wins the president. he's got to come in especially in his first debate, the president, in the town hall and hold governor romney's feet to the fire about his policies, hess facts and make him explain his contradictions and how his policies will not work. jon: chris he says that you've got to love this business -- i'm sorry, pete i want to address this to pete. i was thinking about chris' quote that you've got to love this business. so pete you've got to love this business when your candidat canned seems to be surging. >> i'
in the debate this past week between governor romney and barack obama. the argument for most of this year barack obama has been hitting mitt romney on war on women, arguing he is a waging a war on women. trying to scare women voters what life would be like under a romney presidency. mitt romney for a long time has a way of dealing with this, you saw this in particular in the convention try to make himself more likeable, talk about how he was a good husband and good father and good things he had done for people. that wasn't necessarily working. the point of the column what you saw him do at debates this week instead make his policy arguments. to instead go out there, clearly explained how he is going to help the middle class. in doing so, make all voters and women too realize that some of the things that he was putting forward could actually have a positive impact on their life. that went far more toward making him more likeable than some of his more overt actions. jenna: very interesting to see what changes can be made in just a short time. you mentioned the convention. quick final question here
